OK people, I am in need of assistance. I have been trying to use more planet- and people-friendly cleaning products, but I just don't know what to do about my shower. I moved into a rental property six months ago, and when we moved in the grouting in the (rather old) shower was sparkling white. Now, it has many areas of brown/black/red that I don't know how to attack with my new philosophy of cleaning. I haven't dealt with a tiled shower in years. The only thing I have tried, really, is all-purpose cleaner
and a good stiff scrubbing, as I'm having trouble getting my head around the science of the different cleaning ingredients and just don't know where to start. The all-purpose cleaner simply lightened the patches without removing them. I'd say the owners have not sealed the grout, so the mould is persistent. I'm thinking this stuff is gonna need the big guns, but, what are the big guns? I haven't used chlorine bleach yet, but this is the only other thing I can think of. Does anyone have any experience to share?
FYI these are the cleaning products I have on hand, feel free to let me know if I am missing something that would help me.
* Bi-carb soda
* White vinegar
* Cloudy ammonia
* Lemon juice
* Chlorine bleach
I do a weekly clean, so while I'll put in the extra effort to get rid of this lot, I'd love to find something that would keep this under control with only weekly attention. If I can't I guess I'll have to start drying the tiles after showers. It's depressing me to shower looking at this gunk.
